Harrods Goes Gatsby

Whilst cruising through town yesterday I was thrilled to see that one of my favourite corner shops is celebrating the much anticipated upcoming release of Baz Luhrmann's, The Great Gatsby.

Harrods have gone all out with their opulent windows which always get me in a spin. Well, they've certainly popped the cork this time, not only do the windows look fabulous but they are transforming the Harrods wine department in to a jazzy 1920's style speakeasy where you can indulge in an old fashioned martini or a Hendricks cocktail served in china tea cups until 20th May !

Well, what are you waiting for Flossie? Crop your bob, rouge those knees, kick up your heels and head down to Harrods!

Dont miss our giveaway which starts tomorrow!


  1. Oooooh, so excited, I can't wait to see the movie, I think we are going next week. I'm delighted to see amongst your photos they have produced a very Art Deco version of my fave perfume Alien. I will have to have one of those. Thanks for the tour!

  2. Looks fabulous darling!!!! My bob's already cropped, and I just dug out my vintage dancing shoes. Hope to see you there - perhaps on my way back from Russia in a few weeks, if I can detour that flying machine to Knightsbridge!

    I'm hoping to get to the movie soon - meanwhile loving your pics of the window displays.
    Happy weekend dear Paul.

  3. Looking forward to seeing The Gatsby . . . Harrods certainly brought it to life. I felt I had arrived when many years ago . . . I was in London and shopped at Harrods . . . What fun a "drive through town" to see the glitz and glam of this era in view . . .

  4. WOWWWWW! Oh year, I got my rouge on these knees 'a mine! HEY THERE SIR PAUL! How are you? I am thrilled about this new movie and like Woody Allen's character in MIDNIGHT IN PARIS, this is the era I would go back to in a flash for some fun, 20s style!

    Are you still in for the France party next week? Let me know.YOU ARE ON MY LIST! The only gent on the list, but much anticipated! Anita

  5. Hello Paul

    How exciting - I wish I was in London to pop over to Harrods. Looking forward to the movie

    Have a glorious weekend

  6. Can't wait to see The Great Gatsby and all that jazz.
    Harrods and yourself have done the film proud - all that electric blue, amber and purple - stunning - well done Paul - like your style.

  7. Good morning boyfriend-- the window fronts are amazing!! I'm eagerly awaiting that movie too-- wish I had one of those flapper style dresses to wear!!

    Hope all is well on your side of the pond-- gray and rainy here all day :(


  8. Bravo to your photography talents Paul. Harrods always make the most extravagant and dramatic windows. But sorry, Toronto's Holt Renfrew beat London this time by having the original movie costumes designed by Prada displayed in its store windows. Pamela from Hyde Park, London (not from Speaker's Corner) :))

  9. I'm so glad you saw these windows and shared them with us. I used to adore Harrods (and Selfridges) windoes when I lived in London. I keep meaning to op up to town and take a look ..... and this is worth looking at. I think the elegance of The Jazz Age suits the old department stores so well. Minerva x

  10. Paul, what a treat! I know how stunningly beautiful this must be in reality, wish I could see it. Now, about the movie? Have you seen it yet?
    It's getting terrible reviews in the USA, but we will all flock to it anyway.

  11. Can't wait to see the movie! Afterwards, we'll probably go dancing. Check me out on the dance floor cuz I'll be looking fly :) Oh, yes!!

  12. I shall definitely check out the Harrods Speakeasy Paul! Have a lovely weekend....


  13. Oh wow Paul, the shop windows look really impressive! I am looking forward to see Baz's adaptation of the Great Gatsby. I am not sure about Leonardo di Caprio as Jay Gatsby though, being a great fan of Robert Redford myself :-)

    Enjoy the film next week!


    Oh by the way, I have the hair, the shoes and the's a pity Harrods wine bar is all the way to London ;-)

  14. Can't wait to go watch the movie and dive into my own pile of vintage garments ;-)


  15. Flapper dapper fabulous! Must say I'm also really impressed with the window displays of Harrods recently.

  16. Oh the Harrods windows...I love them! I think everyone is going Gatsby crazy...have not seen the movie yet. Have you? Lovely photos!

  17. Oooooh, really fab or rad or whatever they used in the 20's. Harrod's puts everyone else to shame.

  18. Just watched the season finale of Mr. Selfridge. The window displays were my favorite part of the show!

    These Gatsby windows have made me decide to see the movie TONIGHT!
